NBA Vegas Futures Odds & Finals Predictions to Win 2019-20 Championship

Avatar

The Toronto Raptors captured their first ever NBA Finals championship for the 2018-19 NBA season with a shocking six-game win over the Golden State Warriors. Almost immediately after the game, sportsbooks started posting their odds for next season’s winner. The Milwaukee Bucks started the season as the odds-on favorites, but after free agency the Clippers emerged as the favorites. As of today, the Bucks are back on top as the odds-on favorite to win it all with the best overall record in the league.

We’ve seen over 50 games from each team, but there have already been some dramatic swings. The defending Western Conference Champion Warriors have looked downright awful and have fallen all the way to +100,000 with the worst record in the league. Meanwhile, both the Pelicans and Heat have been playing very well and have been rocketing up the standings.

The latest Finals odds from BetOnline are listed below.  The change column represents how much a team’s odds have improved or decreased since our last update (1/24).  The MOV represents the average margin of victory for each team last season. This number can be useful in setting your own point spread.  For example, the Clippers (5.6) versus the 76ers (2.4) on a neutral court should have an approximate line of the Clippers -3.  This is of course only a starting point for the line, but it should give you a good place to start when estimating matchup odds. The percentage represented in the NBA Finals column is the implied no-vig probability of that team winning the championship this season based on the current market values.
